The photo below shows an Orbital Sander being tested in our laboratories for hand arm vibration according to the ISO-8662 Standards. Tests are performed in our laboratories using the B&K 3560 Pulse Analyzer and our calibrated B&K 4321Triaxial Accelerometer rigid mounted to the tool (sound power testing was also performed for the same tool using the PN8NTC1 European Standard).
